SHSM Summer School-Two credit co-op
Co-operative Education is a mandatory course for SHSM students. It can be difficult to add this to demanding timetables during the regular school year. For this reason, SHSM students have access to this in the month of July. Please see Guidance for more information.
2018 Summer Co-op Information Sheet and Calendar.pdf
The SHSM–Agriculture enables students to build a foundation of sector-focused knowledge and skills before graduating and entering apprenticeship training, college, university, or an entry-level position in the workplace. Where local circumstances allow, boards may elect to offer one or more variants of the SHSM in a given sector, each with a particular area of focus. This SHSM may be designed to have a particular focus – for example, on agricultural equipment or animal and crop science. This focus is achieved through the selection of the four major credits in the bundle.
Non Profit Program
The Non Profit Program is a specialized program that will allow Holy Cross students in Grades 11 and 12 to focus their learning on the non profit sector while meeting the requirements to graduate with their Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
The non profit sector offers a wide range of careers that are dynamic, engaging and rewarding in areas such as art, culture, social justice, education, information technology, health care, and social development.
The common vision throughout this growing sector in Canada’s economy is the desire to make a difference both in our community and throughout the world working with various aid organizations.
